Council to consider Closed meetings process at tonight's session

Earlier this month we noted Councillor Blair Mirau's plans to introduce the topic of how Council approaches its Closed meetings process, with the councillor seeking some time for conversation on the theme as part of tonight's Regular Council session.

During that last session Mr. Mirau observed that he was looking to be proactive and called upon some of the recommendations from the ombudsperson's report on Best practices for Closed Council sessions as his guideline for the conversation at tonight's session.

The ten points the Councillor is putting forward for consideration as part of tonight's Agenda are as follows.

Council members won't have to do too much reference on the theme as they look to review his reading material and offer up a comment towards his thoughts on Closed meetings.

Prior to tonight's Council Session, the members attending City Hall tonight will have held a Closed Session at 6 PM, it marks the tenth time this year that they have taken to the Closed process to discuss civic concerns this year so far.

You can review more of what's ahead for tonight's council session from our preview here.
